This amazing and private property is nestled snuggly on the most Northern tip of Cape Breton Island. Relax on the deck with one of the books from the private library as you listen to the whales playing in the Atlantic, or travel the short distance to the wharf for fresh seafood and take in some of the local entertainment: you, too, will want to dance a jig to the fiddler's tune.
This well loved and immaculately kept home makes a perfect artist's retreat, or family get getaway, or impossibly romantic honeymoon: it has something for everyone. Roast marshmallows in the fire pit after a fantastic hike or share a glass of wine on the balcony off the master bedroom.
Owned by a local, fifth generation fisherman with his wife and daughters who want to share the joy (and maybe a moose or two) with you and your loved ones. Enjoy an authentic Cape Breton retreat now: the friendliest people, the most splendid panoramic view, and the harmony of nature are waiting for you.
We are Cape Bretoners, a fisherman and an English professor, who cherish our first home but presently live across the country with our two daughters.
Darrell Williams purchased this house in 2000
We simply want to share our family home with those whom will also love it and allow people to experience a special area with rich heritage which is too often missed in trips around the Cabot Trail.
It is the only place one can fully relax, without distractions. It encompasses the best of everything: 129 acres of fields and mountains and ocean view. Its pristine, natural setting is a rare commodity and inevitably brings peace and enjoyment.
We loved our stay here. The north of Cape Breton is wild and gorgeous. The house is built on a hill with views over the ocean and Cape St. Lawrence. Great spot for Celtic Colours.
A peaceful place with a wonderful view, I would have been happy to live on the deck with my book the whole time, if the weather had permitted. Beds are comfortable. We are both readers, and wish there were reading lights both in the living room and the bedrooms, both are lacking, I would suggest you bring a book light of your own. Being there in Sept, it was a drive to restaurants, kitchen good for cooking your own, as suggested stop at larger centres to get most of your groceries before coming that far north, the only fresh fish available was mackerel. There was a problem with mice in the kitchen, which we contacted the owner about, he assured us that he is on top of the issue, and it will be dealt with.
The house and the whole region was so amazing. It was everything in the house what you need. Very nice view over the atlantic ocean.
Sometimes there is a little bit traffic, because it is the only road to Meat Cove.
Thank you very much for this nice house and the the nice talk to the father of the owner.
The location of this property is great. You are close to Meat Cove, great hiking trails (Wilkie Sugar Loaf, Tenerife), and it is a neat spot to stop while driving the Cabot Trail but wanting to explore less-travelled locations. Arriving in Capstick was lovely -- it is postcard charming with its few houses along the coastline and a small beach surrounded by cliffs. We had a perfectly relaxing time.
My husband and I stayed here for one night. We will certainly look to rent this property again and I would definitely recommend it to others.
The view was amazing, the property inviting, clean and comfortable. It was just like 'home' the moment we walked in! Everything we hoped for and more . . . whale watching, swimming at their private beach, sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean and enjoying a campfire; we couldn't have asked for more. We would highly recommend this home!
Overall, we had an amazing 2 days in the Capstick Cottage. Loved that the bedrooms were upstairs and slept 5 people very comfortably. Kitchen/dining room were being updated. Some old appliances but, that didn't hinder us. Loved that we could have a campfire outside.
Access to many private hiking trails directly from the property, whale watching, hiking tours, berry picking, bird watching
For stays less than 1 week we charge a $50 cleaning fee.
